The Easter Cantata
(We hope everyone is having a joyful Palm Sunday.  This is the week that we would normally be enjoying our choir's Easter Cantata.  However, due to the coronavirus restrictions, we can only offer you the next best thing.  Here is the YouTube video of the choir's Easter Cantata from 2017.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in our congregation throughout this Holy Week.

Bible Verse of the Week
Words from the Last Supper
“Don’t be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. My Father’s house has room to spare. If that weren’t the case, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a place for you? When I go to prepare a place for you, I will return and take you to be with me so that where I am you will be too. You know the way to the place I’m going.”

Thomas asked, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you have really known me, you will also know the Father. From now on you know him and have seen him.”
John 14:1-7 (CEB)

“As the Father loved me, I too have loved you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy will be in you and your joy will be complete.
John 15: 9-11 (CEB)
